Last year, an amazing 60% of British holiday makers in Australia were repeat visitors. We ask the Australian Tourist Office and South Australia Tourism what makes this number so high, and what there is to see and do for second-timers.
Sydney, Ayer's Rock and the Great Barrier Reef are must-sees for those new to the country, but head to South Australia by train or plane and you’ll find a whole new world of wine and wilderness. Adelaide is the gateway to the stunning white sands and living, breathing nature of Kangaroo Island, home to the best wildlife in Australia. See sea lions, kangaroos and koalas in their pristine natural home, or stay on the mainland and head into the rugged red outback of the Flinders Ranges. 60% of the Australian wine you drink at home is from South Australia, with labels such as Jacob's Creek and Penfolds being produced in the Barossa Valley. So hop over for a tasting, and you can even create your own blend if you like.
Wherever your starting point, Adelaide is easy to reach with a short flight from Sydney or Melbourne. Alternatively, the Ghan and Indian Pacific Trains offer more scenic journeys through sun-bleached outback, rolling plains and historic towns.
And if you need any more reason to travel, the sporting world will have all eyes on Australia in 2013, with the British and Irish Lions paying a visit in June, and the Ashes being held in Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide in November and December.
